Zaatar (Origanum syriacum) potted plant, organic
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 8 to 12. May be grown as an annual, 90 days to harvest.
(Wild Middle-Eastern Oregano, Ezov, Majorana syriaca) Evergreen perennial flowering white to a height of 18 inches. Native to the eastern Mediterranean rim, south into the Middle East and the Arabian peninsula. This is a spicy smelling and tasting oregano-like herb that is the keystone herb in the condiment “Zaatar or Zaatari,” which is used quite frequently by people living in the Middle East. You mix the dried and powdered herb with various other ingredients–garlic, salt, olive oil, crushed sumac seeds, etc and use it on bread. Quite delicious and habit forming in a good way. Plant prefers full sun and sandy, fast-draining soil. Makes an abundant crop of leaves and flower bracts in the first growing season. Plants are small but potent–space 1 foot apart.
